The Chapel Gallery

Hours: Saturday, Tuesday, Thursday, 10 am - 2 pm

About the Chapel Gallery @ St. Matthias

The Gallery is a multifunctional, not-for-profit, art space designed to invite the local arts community to exhibit a variety of visual art mediums, such as painting, drawing, photography, fabric art, mixed media and sculpture. 

The Gallery wants to showcase original artwork of a socially relevant, contemplative, and reflective nature in a sacred, safe and respectful space.  

The church of St. Matthias opened the Chapel Gallery to share our chapel space as a community place for art.  

The Gallery allows us to share widely our understanding of the creativity of the Divine.  

We welcome all:  including those who might never think of entering a church; including those who might never have visited an "art gallery".
